I repowered my '73 morgan OI 413 with a yanmar 4jh3e 56hp after removing the original westerbeke in 2000. Removal and installation was relatively easily accomplished under the forward steps (not a walkthrough model). I put an 18x14 prop on my 1-1/4" shaft and cruise at 6.5kts while running at 2700rpm. I'm very pleased with about 3,000hrs. now on my very reliable yanmar.
